I have no idea why Carrera was called up instead of Federoff.

Clearly I'm saddened by this.

Huh. In baseball-speak, how many "tools" did Johnny have at this point in his career? Zero?

Can his arm be bad enough to take him to a negative?

Why would you want o get rid of Shelley now? He's got a lot of HR and RBI to go to reach 35/100. You want o drop him righ before his real production kicks in?! Glad you're not in charge.

Yeah, a little surprised it's not Fedroff.

Maybe the fact that he's a lefty and Carrera can switch is the deal breaker. Also, to be fair to Zeke, he's been tearing the cover off the ball lately too.

EDIT: Carrera's a lefty too, don't know what I was thinking.

Even when they do the right thing, they fuck it up.

Does Zeke have a better arm? Can his throw make it to the cutoff man?

Wait, does Zeke even know what a cut-off man is?


Well this shows what they think of Fedroff.

Give some credit to Antonetti.... he flew out to Detroit to tell Damon face-to-face about the DFA.

Damon stunk without doubt, but he was a solid person in the clubhouse and he obviously still carries some respect around the ball club.

That Cleveland uniform was just too much to overcome. Watch Johnny latch on somewhere next year and hit .300.
Bottom 4th: Cleveland
- J. Kipnis grounded out to shortstop
- A. Cabrera doubled to deep left
- N. Swisher doubled to center, A. Cabrera scored
- J. Giambi doubled to deep right center, N. Swisher to third, N. Swisher out at home
- J. Giambi caught stealing, catcher to third

1 run, 3 hits, 0 errors

Ha ha.
Why didn't we try to get something for him at the trade deadline?
Ha ha!
Maybe a couple of bats, a few balls and a bag of sunflower seeds?
